Mulholland Dr. - A Psychoanalytic Analysis

If there were ever a film in existence begging for some of the good, old psychoanalysis, it would be David Lynch's surreal dream shaped into cinematic form: Mulholland Dr. (2001). Like that crazy dream you once had that you desperately want an interpretation for, Mulholland Dr. taunts us with its occasional non sequitirs, yet deeply evocative and rich symbolism.

YouTuber Film Formula crafts an excellent examination of this classic film through a psychoanalytic lens. Although my interpretation of the film does differ with hers, she makes some good points in a conversational tone. She has some fascinating insights, so with luck this will not be her last look at David Lynch's film work.
